I am reading the new biography of Roald Dahl…
and have decided I need an office!
Currently, my office is also the laundry room, and Chris’ office, and the walk-thru between the kitchen and the deck, and the room we store crap in. I need a place. A space. A spot. But I cannot afford to renovate my house, obviously.
So… I want to turn my no-electricity-having, moldy, trashed, hole-in-the-roof shed into a WRITING COTTAGE! Dahl’s “hut” (see above) was by all accounts a not-so-charming place, a drippy space, a junky place. But it was his. HIS.
I want MINE!
Currently, it looks like this:
But what will it look like when I’m done? How little can I spend? Will I demo the moldy drywall? Will I DIG THE TRENCH FOR THE POWER LINES MYSELF?
All remains to be seen.
I doubt it will ever look like this! But that’s okay.
I just need a place to hang my bulletin board and store my filing cabinets, and make a cup of tea.
(and maybe take a nap. Shhhhh)
I am accepting any and all advice on how to do this well, and cheaply. I am curious to hear what people think it will cost.
And guess what my cottage will NOT have? That’s right! INTERNETS!
